I don't need no newfangled nylon. Canvas suits me just fine. :-)
"Ruggedwear is a waxed-canvas fabric that Domke claims combines toughness, water resistance, and a retro 'well-worn' look." -DPR
Duluth Pack has been using canvas to make canoe packs since 1882, and it's great material.
I'm not allowed to buy this camera, because I don't have a beard. :-)
Yesterday, Reuters reported: "The company's shares fell as much as 23 percent to $11.26 on Thursday morning - a huge drop from the high of $98.47 touched in July 2014."
USD $1,699.95 with no kit lens. In my experience, cameras with no lenses have poor image quality. :-)
I though that $2,400 lenses were supposed to be "perfecter" than this. :-)
SmilerGrogan: It's ironic that Kodak is including processing in the cost of the film. That was part of George Eastman's early business model (that and stealing technology from other companies). After you finished a roll, you would send in the whole camera and they'd send back your pictures and the camera loaded with fresh film.
I used to send my exposed slide film to Kodak, in their convenient mailers. BTW, they would cut/censor anything that they found to be a tiny bit racy.
chrshale: Seems a remarkably poor showing from the camera industry. We may be witnessing its collapse. Sad.
No, the introduction of Samsung's internet connected refrigerator may be the witnessing of the collapse of common sense. :-)
brownie314: Other than Nikon, pretty slow year. For photography enthusiasts anyway.
I think Nikon announced their DSLRs at CES, because they know that Canon doesn't announce DSLRs there. That's savvy marketing, and my comment isn't meant to detract from the quality of Nikon's offerings.
Two Thumbs Down for the music. :-)
starwolfy: I am wondering what is the weight of the body. Anyone ?
The Nikon USA web site states (D5) "49.9 oz. (1,415 g) with battery and two CompactFlash memory cards but without body cap and accessory shoe cover"
Girlie Men can't handle a camera of this size. They have to use mirrorless cameras. :-)
EOSHDcom is disappointed in the Nikon D5's 4K video functionality:
"This time it’s a win for Canon. Although it was released nearly 4 years ago in 2012 the Canon 1D C remains superior to the current Nikon D5 flagship for 4K, which I find puzzling because technology goes a very long way in 4 years."
Don't most camera companies save their "good stuff" for the CP+ trade show, in February?
(being silly with a touch of sarcasm) Nikon? I thought DPR only wrote about Sony cameras. :-)
In addition to a couple of nice sounding cameras, the announcement timing was a shrewd move by Nikon's PR department. Canon doesn't announce DSLRs at CES, so Nikon had the "camera floor" to themselves.
Oh goody, another DPR Sony Infomercial.
When is DPR going to review the Canon G9 X, which was announced on the same day as the Canon G5 X? The G9 X is more pocketable, and costs less, than the G9 X.
With Leica, sticker shock is generally a bigger issue than shutter shock. :-)
Gundamit: Outside of Nikon, it was weak in review.
(sarcasm) When Samsung ships their internet connected refrigerator, there will be long lines of people waiting outside of Best Buy to get one. :-)
